Revenues

reported,

budget

proposed

The Delano Regional Transfer Station reported revenues of $38,407.18, for the month of September to the Regional Board of Mayors Monday afternoon.

It was $1,275.77 less than was reported for the same period last year. Revenues for eight of the nine months this year have been less than for the corresponding periods in 2015, with the total of $18,883.83, under revenue totals.

The mayors also approved their 2017 budget for the transfer station at the meeting.

The budget approved is for $952,875. The 2016 budget was for $1,022,775.

Now the budget must be approved by the four municipal councils that are governing partners in the enterprise — Electric City, Grand Coulee, Elmer City and Coulee Dam — before it becomes final.

Fund will

get half

million for

development

The Northwest Native Development Fund (NNDF) is the recipient a $500,000 grant from the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Community Development Financial Institutions Fund (CDFI Fund).

The grant will allow the NNDF to continue its goal of helping individuals create and build assets such as homes and small businesses.

NNDF provides financial and technical assistance services for those who may not qualify for other sources of funding. They leverage their available resources with local lenders and technical assistance providers. 

“We are truly grateful for the CDFI Fund award this year,” said Ted Piccolo, executive director of the Nespelem-based agency. “This comes at a pivotal time for the NNDF in making more small business loans to Natives in the Plateau region of Eastern Washington. We can bring more vital financing to the Colville and Spokane Indian Reservations where small business financing is incredibly difficult.”
